As the first day of our inaugural school year approaches, we're thrilled to unveil to you the team that will make up the founding faculty & staff of BASIS Independent Fremont. Many thanks to all who have participated in our numerous hiring events that have led to the hiring of such a talented group of professionals. We're pleased that you took part in such a crucial process of the establishing of our cohesive school community. We're pleased to introduce to you Kyle Harter, Subject Expert Teacher: Art at BASIS Independent Fremont.


In 2009, Mr. Harter graduated from Columbia College earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts and went on that same year to teach English in South Korea. Mr. Harter came back to the United States with an even stronger passion for education, which led him to join the Teach for America Corps in 2013. While teaching a demanding schedule, he simultaneously pursued a degree at Loyola Marymount University and received his teaching credential and his Master's in Education in 2015.

Mr. Harter feels immense joy teaching art at BASIS Independent Fremont. He strives to build a love and passion for the arts with his students that will last a lifetime. “I chose to teach at BASIS Independent because there is a passion for learning in the hearts of everyone in the community. This love for learning and a desire for deeper understanding is a constant source of motivation. When attention and trust is established between teacher and students, talents can be sculpted, achievements hung on the wall, and mistakes corrected with will power. In building these solid relationships, I hope to bring a sense of determination and poise that will carry with each student as they move on in their education.”

“It’s my goal that students pursue their passions as I cultivate the conditions in which they can learn. In doing this I’m confident they will be able to paint a future of their choosing,” says Mr. Harter.

When he is not teaching, Mr. Harter can be found hiking, camping, reading, enjoying music, and working on his own artwork!

You're invited to a Special Open House event on May 22 to learn more and meet our passionate teachers in person!
